When Barack Obama was president, Donald Trump was a major supporter of political accountability.


Trump repeatedly took to Twitter to complain about the buck not stopping with the president of the United States.

But since Trump began holding public office in 2017, he has repeatedly argued that he need not take responsibility for anything.

With the United States leading the world in COVID-19 cases and fatalities, Trump has sought to blame others for his failures.

And former Obama administration officials appear to be increasingly fed up with Trump's deflections.

Former National Security Advisor blasted Trump's "BS" on coronavirus.

Former CIA Director John Brennan also weighed in.

Former senior White House advisor David Axelrod offered a fact-check of Trump.

Former White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri also blasted Trump.

For Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power:

Former top State Department official Richard Stengel offered a question.

And former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe suggested that history would remember the phrase "Don't pull a Trump."
